Data collection on our website
You can generally use our website without disclosing your personal data.
When you visit the HUGO PETERSEN website, technical access data is recorded and evaluated automatically (i.e. not via registration) by the internet servers (web servers) of HUGO PETERSEN. The web servers used store the following data by default:
- Information about the Internet browser used
- Your IP address
- Operating system used
- Name of the website from which you are visiting us
- The web pages you visit on our site
- The date and time of the server request
This data cannot, however, be assigned to a specific person; the individual user remains anonymous. This data is not merged with other data sources.
If data is passed on to external service providers, we have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that the data protection regulations are observed.
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Such cookies can be used to identify your computer during your visit to our website or to make it easier for you to use our website. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses.
On our website we use a so-called session cookie. Session cookies are small units of information that a provider stores in the RAM of the visitor’s computer. A randomly generated unique identification number, a so-called session ID, is stored in a session cookie. The session cookie is automatically deleted at the end of your visit to the HUGO PETERSEN website.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Deactivating cookies does not restrict the functionality of this website.
This site uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
In order to use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy location of the places indicated by us on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
Collection and processing of your personal data
Personal data is only collected if you provide it to us of your own accord when sending e-mails in the context of enquiries or requests for material.
The data and information transmitted to us remain with our company, our affiliated companies and our provider. Your personal data will not be made available in any form to any third party by us or any person acting on our behalf. We will only use the personal data you provide to us to fulfil our contractual obligations to you and for other purposes only if you have consented to the relevant use. You can revoke your consent to the use of your personal data at any time with effect for the future by sending an e-mail to the e-mail address given in the imprint or to the data protection officer (for contact details, see below).
Retention of your data
We only store personal data for as long as is necessary to perform a service that you have requested or for which you have given your consent, unless there are legal obligations to the contrary, such as retention periods under commercial and tax law or periods for ongoing legal proceedings.
Security of your data
HUGO PETERSEN uses technical and organisational security measures in order to protect the data you have made available from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. In the case of collection and processing of personal data, the information is transmitted in encrypted form to prevent misuse of the data by third parties. The HUGO PETERSEN website uses SSL or TLS encryption for this purpose. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
Our security measures are continuously monitored and improved in accordance with technological developments.
Information, amendment and deletion of your data
You have the right at any time to obtain information about all your personal data stored by us, to check it, and if necessary to have it corrected and deleted. All you need to do is send an e-mail to the e-mail address given in the imprint or to the data protection officer (see below for contact details).
Right of revocation
You are entitled to revoke your consent to the use of personal data at any time with effect for the future. To do so, simply send an e-mail to the e-mail address given in the imprint or to the data protection officer (see below for contact details).
Right of revocation
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
Right to complain to a supervisory authority
You can contact the supervisory authority responsible for you at any time with a complaint. Your competent supervisory authority depends on the federal state of your residence, your work or the alleged violation. A list of supervisory authorities (for the non-public sector) with address can be found at: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
The constant development of the Internet makes it necessary to adapt our data protection declaration from time to time. We reserve the right to make appropriate changes at any time.
